During his recent visit to The Kapil Sharma Show, Sunny admitted being nervous about the film.

When the film had released then, everyone in the industry…” He then gestured a thumbs down. He continued – “But the way the audiences pulled it up, everyone just changed.” His comment left Kapil shocked, while the studio audience showed their support by applauding him.
